Clean Install! Clean Install! Clean Install!

Fashion is only the attempt to realize art in living forms and social intercourse _ Sir Francis Bacon

Why do I procrastinate about doing a clean install? I know that when I crash just by turning or camming or razzing an item, it is time for a clean install, but I delay and try to muddle along, bring my draw distance down to 32 and crashing and getting fed up and closing out of SL for days. I put this outfit on last Sunday and only finally got around to shooting it – AFTER I did a clean install. It’s not like it that hard even.

I know why, though. I am always afraid the new version won’t work and the old version will be gone, lost forever. See my rant on that at “Linden Lab, Don’t Feel My Pain.”

I have also been decorating the beautiful Daylily Cottage from Scarlet Creative for Collabor88. Crashing when I rez things made it a slow process. I really should have done that clean install sooner.

Oh Yes!

Fashion is what you're offered four times a year by designers. And #style is what you choose - Lauren Hutton

There is so much to enjoy at Collabor88, but I have to admit that Emery is always one of my faves. I just know the quality will be peerless and the separates will work perfectly together as this jacket and dress does.

Flutter & Flow

A book, a bottle of wine, a sunny day

It’s a beautiful sunny day in Gidgewood, so I popped across the river to Gidge’s back forty and settled under Trompe Loeil’s marvelous outdoor hangout with some deer and rabbits as one does. I brought along some wine and grapefruit which don’ go together if you eat them at the same time, but are fine for eating and then drinking. My lovely dress is from Stories & Co by Flowey for Collabor88. I interviewed the designer Flutter Memel for this month’s issue of VSN. You can read the article here.

#FlatLarry and Me

#FlatLarry @ The Drunk Tank
I am behind the times this week. I was catching up on last week’s The Nightly Show tonight and cracked up at this member of the audience who made off with a giant flat Larry, taking it home nonchalantly on the subway. He asked the thief to take #FlatLarry around and share on Twitter. Well, I didn’t steal the original #FlatLarry, but I found one on the web and set him out in front of The Drunk Tank, one of the amazing builds in DRD’s Steel Town – and entire city in a gacha.

If I had known I was going to be hanging out with #FlatLarry, I might have dressed a bit more professionally, but somehow I think he might just like this Karma dress from PixiCat. With the texture hud, it can also switch to a smooth, shiny leather.

Spring at Furillen

It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want — oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
I was feeling restless and antsy yesterday morning, so I went off for a bit of an exploration rather than unpacking boxes and figuring out what to feature from the Arcade which opens at midnight. I will do that today, but yesterday, there was just something in the air. And it was something that suited the carefree and happy Kaelyn maxi dress from Thalia Heckroth™. It is made for the Maitreya mesh body and works best is you don’t bother with feet and shoes. It comes is all sorts of happy colors and if wearing it does not lift your mood, you’re doing it wrong.

The sea was as dark as dreams and as deep as sleep.

“The sea was as dark as dreams and as deep as sleep”

The post title, “The sea was as dark as dreams and as deep as sleep” is a small quote from A Strangeness in My Mind, the newest book by Orhan Pamuk that I just finished reading a few days ago. My review, which i linked, explains why that writer means so much to me. I loved his imagery and that influenced how I fiddled with the windlight™ settings to suggest that dark and deep sea.

“The sea was as dark as dreams and as deep as sleep”

This month’s Collabor88 is all about espionage, but the spywear is flexible as you can see in this outfit that is happily as comfortable on a tightrope in the sea as it would be in a hidden lair of Dr. Evil.

The Perfect Red

"All my life I've pursued the perfect red." —Diana Vreeland

Diana Vreeland once said she spent her entire life in search of the perfect red. She should have started at Sascha’s Designs where Sascha Fragelli has captured the perfect red in her Lush Red Dress for The Instruments from February 11th through the 25th. The dress comes with its own jewelry, heart-shaped hat and white boa, but I decided to go in another direction with Lelutka’s bolero in purple (it was a Christmas group gift). Something about red and purple is so lush and wild.
